Ah yes, the "German Answer Flame" USD fork... I'm talking about a fork that you'd be able to to walk into a shop anywhere in the world and order, as well upgrade, adjust and have worked on by any service center.

Big tires at low pressure = crazy traction and some smoothness, not suspension. You're right, though, because I don't think I'd want to ride a 6" travel fat bike.

I don't think that "breakage resistance" is an issue... why was the last time you broke a thru-axle? I suspect that a 15mm axle is enough given that the bikes are usually going slower than a proper mountain bike, and existing lower leg mold tech may have also played a part.

The big tires certainly help to smooth things out but there's a big difference between a 2 - 3" of undamped "suspension" in your tires and a proper fork.

True, Sea Otter isn't the best to see what happens when it gets down to freezing or lower.
